Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
This was by far the best tour of our two weeks in Europe. Our guide Gabby was excellent and very capable. Very emotional experience for me since my Dad landed on Omaha beach in 1944 with the US Army.

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
A first class experience! Touring with a small group in a comfortable air conditioned van was ideal. Our guide, Johnny, was fantastic and entertaining. We loved each site we visited and standing in the water at Omaha Beach looking up at the cliffs our soldiers had to climb while fighting the Germans, as well as walking through the American Cemetery, was nothing short of humbling.

How to Get There

Omaha Beach is located along the coast of Normandy in northern France, 15 miles (24 kilometers) northwest of Bayeux. Although buses run to the beach from Bayeux, the easiest way to visit is by private transportation or as part of a guided tour. The American Cemetery lies above the beach, from where a long walkway heads down to the beach itself.

When to Get There

Tours run to Omaha Beach year-round, but it can get busy during peak summer season. If you’re visiting in July and August, try to arrive early morning or early evening to avoid the large groups of day-trippers. The most moving time to visit is during the annual D-Day Festival, which commemorates the anniversary of the Allied Landings with a program of memorials, parades, and beachside picnics.

The D-Day Landings

Omaha Beach was the location of one of the most significant battles World War II. On June 6, 1944, American troops were given the task of securing Omaha Beach as part of a strategy to land Allied troops along five points on the coast of Normandy—an operation code-named D-Day. Due to unforeseen tidal forces and stronger than expected German defenses, the American soldiers suffered massive losses—2,400 casualties in a day of bloody fighting. However, the landing was eventually successful with 34,000 troops securing the area for the Allies, and thus beginning the end of the war.
